What do builders’ services include?

Local builders can help you with your needs and concerns regarding constructing your home, office, business or any dream property! Here’s what you can expect from builders near you:

Conceptualisation and planning

Before general builders start your construction project, the first stage is to create your concept behind it and plan the blueprints, design and other essential elements. Feel free to plan precisely how you want to as your Tasker guides you to ensure everything is up-to-code and the design and structure are sound and stable. Once the construction plans and blueprints are ready, the next step would be obtaining building and construction permits. This may sound overwhelming, but your Tasker can help you get the right planning permission for your project.

Implementation and execution

Once all the necessary documents and planning are done, your Tasker can now start your construction project! This stage usually starts with clearing and excavating the land to remove boulders, trees or anything that stands in the way of your building. It can also mean demolishing an old property standing on your preferred space while following building regulations. Afterwards, they can proceed with pouring and curing the foundation. Framing comes next, and that includes installing wooden frames and steel beams. 

When your property has been completely framed out, that’s where doing rough electrical and plumbing work comes in. A good builder will install the roof, vents, ductwork, heating, and cooling units and may even start paving your driveway and other outdoor spaces.

Finalisation and completion

The interior of your property is completed at this stage. General builders near you install insulation, drywall, ceilings and outlets. And once the interior walls are good to go, that’s when fixtures such as lighting, windows and doors are added. Renovating the bathroom and installing tubs, toilets, faucets, and sinks can also be a part of this phase. The final step in building services covers finishing touches, from installing your flooring and painting your walls to putting countertops in. 

A construction project may leave a massive mess once it’s finished. Get someone to clean after the builders to make your property look more polished without you having to lift a finger!

Shed installation and rebated concrete slab


Melbourne VIC, Australia

17th Jun 2021

Must be a registered business with ABN and invoice. We are wanting to have a rebated concrete slab laid for a garden shed and then flatpack shed construction/installation. Shed size 2.25w x 2.25d x 2.06h 8x anchors included The property has direct access to the rear from a public carpark, so easily accessible by vehicle. Please see the attached photo's of the site, or you're welcome to come and inspect it, we are located in Sandringham 3191. Its relatively flat and straight forward. We will do basic site preparation works for you, remove the tanbark and small tree so the soil is flat and ready for installation. We have had a professional quote from the shed company but they are unable to install within the next 6 weeks hence why we are looking for alternative options. *Simple flatpack shed installation quote: $300inc gst Shed installation video for reference - 5 step installation *Slab installation quote: $1068 inc gst. Please see attached photo's for reference. Total quote $1368 inc gst Ideally we would prefer weekend work or the week of 3rd July to 11th July. Good references or reviews are a must. Thanks!

Empty then Plunge toilet


Fitzroy North VIC, Australia

18th Jun 2021

Hey there, our toilet is blocked because someone decided to get four ply toilet paper and treat it like one ply. Currently the bowl is full with a few turds and need to be jettisoned to make room for a plunge, which will hopefully do the trick. I’ve tried vinegar & bi carb, to no success. I’m working to a deadline tonight so I don’t have the time so offering someone a quick $50 to give it a go. Cheers. In north Fitz. You will need a plunger & bucket, although I have a bucket and plunger but they’re both pretty mediocre.
